It's been about two years or more since I've been around much on Basenotes. I just decided to post again to my Blog. You can check that out if you followed me before or are interested at all.
I've also cleared out some space in my Personal Messages Inbox. Drop me a line if you like.
It's good to be back, and just want to say that I'm glad for the time that I'm now once again able to spend here. Ciao for now!
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
Glad to see you back here, Jaime!

Welcome back Jamie.
I remember reading several of your posts previously.
There have been some changes since you were here last, including a membership fee. Send me a PM and I will let you know about payment detail to me, oh oh I mean basenotes.

Reading all the posts from dear friends makes it seem like old-home week. Hello everyone!
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
